The Snake Plant is one of the best houseplants for beginners! Known for its tolerance of drought, capable of going for weeks on end without water and low lighting, the Snake Plant thrives on neglect. As an added bonus, the Snake Plant even purifies the air around it, removing toxins like benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from its surroundings.
Varieties may include Trifasciata, Laurentii, Zeylanica, Cylindrica, Moonshine, Starfish, Hahnii, Black Gold, Superba (list is not exhaustive).
WARNING: The Snake Plant, though an air purifier, is itself poisonous. Keep out of reach of pets and small children.
